Alright Team TMO, super excited for the next step in driver advancement this weekend with a maiden voyage in NASA Time Trials. Took a trip to the rollers for class certification. Bone stock engine with only an AED tune and Flowmaster cat-backs was good for 370 RWHP and 361 torque. With 3750# minimum weight w/driver, I slot easily into TT3 with 100TW Goodyear 3R’s. Completed annual tech tonight and now have a shiny new log book. Little league wins out for Saturday, but come Sunday it’s GO Time!!
On this installment of “What Have I Got Myself Into” : AeroCatch hood pins. This mod personally marks a new level of commitment to track car insanity - cutting holes in perfectly good body panels! Last outing at AutoClub Speedway, CaliPhotography had some really nice shots coming into turn 1 of the roval, and the lift on the front corners of the hood at 145 mph is very noticeable. Passenger side is done, still have the drivers side to do. I wanted to mount them in place of the OE outside bump stops, where there happens to be 3 layers of metal to deal with. A bit tricky and time consuming, but the piece of mind will be worth it in the end. This mod will be followed by cutting 2 really big holes for the Race Louver RX vents before the next track day.
That Race Louvers hood vent made a tremendous difference in cooling and lap times for my car. Just make sure you get it in the right place per the install directions. Best bang for the buck mod I ever made!
